Mixed Media Monday with Laura

Good morning!

I tend to crate mostly layouts but once in a while I love to try new things... that is one of the things I love about the hobby...trying new things and if I love it the results than great if I didn't then I learned and try again.
Luckily this one of the times where I loved the results...

I used the Scraps of Darkness April kit to alter this wine bottle....
I did layers of gesso, gel medium, stamping, molding paste, crackle medium and Lindy's and dylusions mist...this is the result
The adorable Prim resin owl is from a previous Scraps of Darkness kit...I treated it the same as I did the flowers and the other pieces...I covered them in gesso then added layers of mists, I used the Lindy's Stamp Gang Starburst Mist Steampunk Sepia from the color add on, the Prima Color Bloom Soft Teal from the store, and Dylusions squeezed orange inky spray from a previous kit.  After I was done misting and everything was try I added Prima Finnabair Art Alchemy Acrylic Paint Metallique Steampunk Copper and
Metallique Fresh Orange.

Here you can see the Kaisercraft script stamp I used from elements add on.

I love how the crackle looks 

The molding past and crackle effect 

The key and lock were also from a previous kit 

This cool Tim Holtz metal band is from the elements add on that I altered with the gesso and mists and paint.
My next project was a lot of fun too....
I bought a couple of the Brusho crystal colours from the 
These things are so much fun....I am going to order more colors..

I started with a piece of 7dots paper that I had in my stash.
I covered it in clear gesso and allowed to dry.  I then used a Crafters Workshop stencil with some molding paste and heat set it.  I sprayed my paper with a bit of water and then started adding the brusho powder in turquoise and lime green. 
I then spritzed with more water and allowed the colors to mix and mingle.

See those really cool multi color flowers?  I used brusho on them too!  They are Petaloo DIY paintable Dahlias and Rosebuds.
I spritzed them with a bit of water...added the brusho colors then spritzed again. Cool affect.

I covered the chipboard with  ink lightly then took the pieces and ran through the colors that were left on my crafts mat.   

Thanks for stopping by
